Trivia

Even though the film was entirely produced by Hanna-Barbera, with the exception of "Castle Thunder" being heard a few times, none of Hanna-Barbera's famous sound effects show up in this film. This became more common with the company during the 1990s. See more »

indescribible!!
30 January 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews



This perfect gem of a movie is indescribible. It is touching ,poetic ,excellent in performances and plotting. Leonard Nimoy is astounding as Moundshroud ,the music score was brilliant. I think Ray Bradbury deserves great credit. This film won an Emmy (one it was damn deserving of). This is what I consider the smartest move I ever made when buying a video. I was not Dissapointed. Bradbury Rules. The book is great too.
